Hello, We have some Banana trees growing. The trouble is they grow too
tall and then break. I've noticed that when they sprout leaves they
send out a long tight whorl of leaves from the top of the plant and
that unfurls into a higher layer of leaves that then widen after some
time. However i couldn't see a proper tip or apical meristem.
1. Can i prune ( chop off ) the tight whorl of leaves and keep the
2. Will this force the leaves lower down to develop and widen more
3. It has some straggly leaves lower down, below the actual top broad
leaves. Can i chop those off ?
The suckers have been taken care off, so that's not a problem.
